St John's Wort was a favorite all throughout history. It has been used throughout history as a mental medicine. Typically, it's well known for applications in dealing with mood disorders, anxiety, depression, and insomnia. The great minds throughout history who adored its use were highly respected and intelligent people, who changed the course of human history in many ways. Today there is a modern scientific understanding of the herb, called phytochemistry.
St Johns Wort acts as an SSRI. This is important to understand because much like an MAOI, an SSRI should not be combined with certain types of substances. Something as mundane as some hebal tea from Walmart could dangerously interact with an SSRI. So make sure you've thoroughly done some research before just taking anything in the world in combination with this stuff. It really should only be consumed if nothing else is being taken. It's a stand-alone type supplement.

To say that St Johns Wort has a few pharmacological constituents is beyond an understatement. Take a look at the list below.

The reason people make tinctures ( spirits ) is because certain compounds made by plants are not soluble in water. Alcohol on the other hand, can dissolve both polar and non-polar constituents. They also have a much longer shelf life than a water extract. You can buy them or make your own. Below is a short walk-through on making your own St Johns Wort Tincture.
Tinctures are easy enough to make. You simply soak the plant matter in high proof liquor, like everclear, for a minimum duration of one month. Keep them stored in a cool, dark place. Light can damage certain chemicals. It can also help the extraction process to shake the mixtures up from time to time. After the time has passed, the remaining St Johns Wort can be filtered through a cheese cloth and placed into glass tincture bottles with droppers. You can either dispose of the remaining organic material, or save it for another technique known as calcination.
